Volunteer Long Beach Farmer's Market

We'll be bringing our chicken ambassadors to the Admiral Kidd Park Farmer's market on Sat May 4th. We'll be promoting healthy food. Come and join us if you'd like to speak to families about how fun it is to have chickens. The market is from 9-2p and we'll be on the community awareness side, not the food stand side. Here's what we are advertising will be there.

    Thanks for every who came. We have a great showing especially have CJ and her 4H chicken club come. Their silkies stole the show and had a huge crowd. This is a great way to raise awareness of pet chickens and backyard flocks for eggs you can feel good about. Another event at this location is coming June 8.

    We would like to buy a hen as a pet, friendly with kids (maybe a Australorp?) and laying brown eggs. We live in L.A. Will we be able to find one at this Farmer's Market? Thanks

    Hi I'm new but this sounds fun and great community education opportunity. Hopefully by then I'll have some bantam chicks . She's sitting them now. And I'll bring the parents too

    Hello, I'm interested in participating. We raise chickens as a 4-H project. We can bring our chickens as well as promote our 4-H club.

    Thanks,
    Cindy

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
